Case in point...Ahlstrom...the top I began a week or two ago. I have the back and one sleeve finished, a good start on the second sleeve, and I finished the first half of the front yesterday. It looks pretty good! It is a good knit...enough to keep you sort of interested but not so intense that it takes a while to get a row done (compare to Portland, for example).
It does feel weird, though, not to have a lot of wips going on...other than this I have a pair of socks and a pair of mittens that I've sort of put on hold. I've started thinking about Christmas knitting...a few gifts for friends, but probably nothing major. And small projects, which I like.
